Sit back and enjoy a few hours of assured relaxation and harmony listening to the ever popular masterpieces of famous composers in the splendidly festive atmosphere of a full house.“ Read more …
Eva-Maria Hohenfels

This has always been the key motivation behind the series of POPULAR CONCERTS founded by Prof. Victor Hohenfels and his wife Eva-Maria more than 50 years ago.
From the very beginning, these concerts have always attracted such large audiences that it has been possible to stage them without any subsidies or grants whatsoever over the past 50 years. Today these popular concerts presented in the Berlin Philharmonic Hall contribute in no small part to making the German capital the major centre for the performing arts that it is. Over three million concertgoers from Berlin and the whole world have attended these concerts over the past five decades.
The name of the series is simple and self-explanatory – in a subscription series of seven concerts a bill of fare of the most famous and popular works from the world of classical music is presented to the audience, grouped around themes such as „Symphonies of the World“, „Composer Portraits“ or „Classic and Romantic Masterpieces“.
The traditional concerts held over the Christmas season and Easter include such well loved evergreens as Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, Beethoven’s Eroica, and Ravel’s Boléro, while New Year’s Day is reserved for Beethoven’s Ninth with its Ode to Joy final movement.
Berlin Symphony Orchestra with its Principal Conductor Stanley Dodds and all its other famous conductors and solists have performed since the very beginning in the marvelous auditorium of the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, one of the world’s most beautiful concert halls with its unrivalled superb acoustic.
So why not come along yourself and experience the sheer magic our Popular Concerts have to offer.
We would be delighted to see you!
